Chyra has earned himself a reputation for sinking his teeth into some “grand roles” that are both difficult and risky, and for which he plays shady, strong, cruel and ruthless characters. But this time around, in Carte Blanche, he plays a positive person: a secondary-school teacher who is much loved by his pupils and who decides to hide the fact that he is going blind in an effort to avoid losing his job and in order be able to adequately prepare his students for the baccalaureate exam. His diagnosis doesn’t offer even a shred of hope: the teacher is on the verge of becoming permanently and totally blind. But his reactions change over time: while initially frightened, he is nevertheless far from sinking into despair. On the contrary: he fulfils his educational duty, makes a true friend and comes to the aid of a rebellious student. Based on a true story, the tale that the film tells could well have a social impact, since it demonstrates the complicated situation that disabled people find themselves in and depicts their struggle to get by in society.

Urszula GrabowskaArkadiusz Jakubik and Eliza Rycembel also feature among the cast of the film, and Witold Plociennik served as DoP. Produced by Aurum FilmCarte Blanche benefited from backing from the Polish Film Institute. Kino Swiat is handling distribution in Polish theatres.
